We find Uni-turf is a popular product for use in schools this can include both new-build projects and refurbishments; King John Academy in Benfleet originally had a tired woodblock floor over which we installed Uni-Turf with a rubber shock pad (meeting EN 14904 and the ECB TS3 standards). This surface is used for just about everything such as cricket, netball, hockey and basketball along with non-sport applications such as exams and parents evenings.
We supply and install Uni-Turf throughout the world; it is the first choice for many prestigious worldwide indoor Cricket Schools. Here in the UK alone we have supplied and installed Uni-turf at Lords, Headingley, The Oval, The Rose Bowl, Exeter Centre of Excellence and the National Sports Centre, Lilleshall to name but a few.
Overseas cricket markets include South Africa, where the country is rapidly upgrading its coaching facilities; installations include the Wanderers CC in Johannesburg and Kwazui Natal Cricket Union Indoor School at Kings Park in Durban. We have also completed several installations across Bangladesh, Pakistan & more recently in India for the BCCI as the Indian Cricket Board are insisting on Uni-Turf and state of the art facilities.
As well as cricket, Uni-turf is an exceptional tennis sports surface. Recent Sports Surfaces (UK) Ltd installations include Bodmin Tennis Centre and The PUMA Centre in Robin Park Wigan, both part of the LTA Indoor Tennis Initiative Programme. Overseas installations include the Czechoslovakian National Indoor Tennis Centre in Prague.
Sports Surfaces (UK) Ltd are also actively involved in Indoor Athletic Facilities where Uni-turf has been installed at Birmingham’s National Indoor Arena, and Monkton Stadium, Jarrow and overseas installations include Ekerberghallen in Oslo, the scene of indoor world record breaking performances.
